FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A Taunton man was ordered held without bail Monday afternoon in connection with Friday’s homicide in Fall River.
Joseph Noe, 25, was arraigned on several charges including murder, unlawful discharge of a firearm within 500 feet of a building and two counts of assault and battery by means of a firearm.
The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office said Noe turned himself in at the Fall River Police Station Monday morning and was placed under arrest.
Police responded to JC’s Cafe on Bedford Street around 10:15 p.m. Friday reports of multiple people shot.
One victim – Eric Voshell, 39 – was rushed to Charlton Memorial Hospital and then transferred to Rhode Island Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
It was revealed in court Monday that Voshell died of a gunshot to the head.
Two other gunshot victims – a 37-year-old Fall River man and a 23-year-old Bridgewater man – were treated at area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, the DA’s office said.
During the arraignment, prosecutors revealed a five-shot revolver registered to Noe was found at the scene.
